It’s Spring in the Blue Mountains, and that’s a glorious thing. Right now, the daffodils are smiling at me every time I walk past them, and the roses are beginning to bud, and the days are feeling warmer. It’s beautiful. And it reminds me that new life is always at work, even when we can’t see any evidence at all!
At our house, indoor soccer has begun, the BBQ is being enjoyed, the boys are eating a lot of Weet-bix, and I’m buzzing away with new ideas. I enjoyed speaking at the Christian Schools Australia leadership retreat on the Gold Coast in August and I’m about to head to Phillip Island to speak at a weekend convention for St Hilary’s Anglican Church, Melbourne. As well as that, I’m investigating publishing ‘The Zookeeper’ as a children’s book, and Darren and I are planning a trip to Nepal in November.
If you would like a copy of any of my books, including the latest, “The Plum Tree in the Desert”, please go to my book page. If you would like to hear any of my recent radio stories, please go to the ministries page. If you would like to be in contact, or make a booking, please send me a message on the contact page. I’d love to hear from you!
With love from Naomi
In 2013, Naomi was commissioned by Interserve to write a book telling the best stories of faith and mission in Asia and the Arab World, through the eyes of Interserve partners. She loved the whole process – travelling, interviewing the partners and writing up their amazing stories of God at work, even in the desert. ‘The Plum Tree in the Desert’ was released by Authentic Media in mid 2015 and is available on this website now!
My Seventh Monsoon is the first in Naomi Reed’s award-winning trilogy. It was written in Nepal during the monsoon of 2005, while Naomi was struggling with home-school, civil war and 120 days of rain. As she stared outside at the rain, she began to type and consider the way that God works his purposes in our lives through seasons. The book reads like ‘a very long cup of tea’ and was awarded second place in the Australian Christian Book of the Year Award, 2008
